Summary of Edward T Welch s When People Are Big and God is Small Book Excerpt:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The author’s life was controlled by other people’s opinions. He was always shy and self-conscious, but never considered it a problem until he was nominated for a senior award. Then he felt like a total failure. #2 I had no answers, but the events of the day certainly brought these issues to the front of my mind. I was a Christian, but that didn’t help me put up a fight. I still felt self-consciousness, being controlled by the opinions of others, or whatever it was called. #3 I had a conversion experience when I was a seminary student, and I realized that I didn’t have to care about the opinions of others. I could simply be aware of God’s opinion of me, which was rooted in the finished work of Jesus. #4 I thought my treatment was working, until I got married. Then I realized that I was still being ruled by the opinions of others. I wasn’t feeling fine, but I wasn’t motivated to investigate further.

Developments in Biblical Counseling Book Excerpt:

Are you looking for a brief introduction to what the biblical counseling movement is and how it has changed over the years? In Developments in Biblical Counseling , J. Cameron Fraser turns a journalistic eye to this question and presents a concise assessment. Introducing us to the formative work of Jay Adams, Fraser outlines several themes of biblical counseling that became foundational for the movement as a whole and observes how the movement received criticisms from outside and made necessary developments from within. He points out that some of these developments have an affinity with Puritan approaches to counseling that Adams rejects but may point in a more consistently biblical direction. Table of Contents: 1. Some Foundational Views of Nouthetic Counseling 2. Some Criticisms of Nouthetic Counseling 3. Some Developments in Biblical Counseling 4. Biblical and Puritan Counseling

A Small Book for the Anxious Heart Book Excerpt:

Fear and anxiety are chronic struggles for many people that are only intensifying and increasing. Best-selling author Edward T. Welch shares the comfort and peace of Jesus in fifty brief readings for those who wrestle with fear. A Small Book for the Anxious Heart is a small but powerful devotional to remind men and women of the encouraging, beautiful words in Scripture to anxious people. While many books on fear and anxiety exist—promising to help men and women manage their struggles with methods and formulas—this devotional reaches deeper into Scripture, making the Word of God more accessible. Don’t put a Band-Aid on your fear and anxiety; rather, learn to bring your fear to Jesus, relying on his Word. Welch has been counseling for over thirty-eight years and is the author of more than a dozen books, including A Small Book about a Big Problem, Running Scared: Fear, Worry and the God of Rest, Shame Interrupted, When People Are Big and God Is Small, and many others. Jesus cares for us, and in these readings, Welch invites readers to trust him for today, knowing he goes before us always.

A Small Book about a Big Problem Book Excerpt:

A Small Book about a Big Problem by biblical counselor and psychologist Edward T. Welch guides readers to look carefully at how their anger affects them and others through short, daily meditations. In a fifty-day reading plan journey, Welch unpacks anger while encouraging and teaching readers to respond with patience to life's difficulties. This biblically wise resource is a useful tool for pastors, counselors, and lay helpers who are working with people who struggle with a short fuse. In A Small Book about a Big Problem, Welch invites readers to consider how everyone can find anger in their actions and attitudes, but Jesus, the Prince of Peace, is the only one who can empower his people to grow in patience, peace, and wholeness. How many times today have you been irritated? Frustrated? Anger is so common—yet it also hurts. It not only leaves a mark on us, but it also leaves a mark on others. The wounds we inflict on ourselves and others because of anger—loss of intimacy, trust, security, and enjoyment in our closest relationships—give us compelling reasons to look closely at our anger and lift our eyes to Christ.

Running Scared Book Excerpt:

In this faith-bolstering book, best-selling author Edward T. Welch investigates the roots of fear in the human heart and the ramifications of living in the grips of anxiety, worry, and dread. Running Scared explores how fear inescapably takes root in all of our lives—and how our race for the good life finds us all too often “running scared.” Welch encourages readers to discover for themselves how the Bible is full of beautiful words of comfort and peace for fearful people. Everyone is afraid of something, and Welch guides readers to see how Jesus enters in to fear. Within thirty topical meditations, Welch offers sound biblical theology, gospel answers, and moment-by-moment, thoughtful encouragement for those in a heart and mind battlefield of rampant, panic-stricken fear. This comprehensive primer on the topic of fear, worry, and the rest of God will have readers retreating to Scripture for invariable constancy, stalwart care, and robust comfort rather than human independence, control, and self-protectiveness. Running Scared affirms that, through Scripture, God speaks directly to our fears, including: Money and possessions People and their judgments Death, pain, suffering, and punishment Welch's lively text provides convincing evidences that humanity's struggle against active and dormant fears are countless. He presents the good news that God provides both the remedy and the cure for this malady in the person of Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, and through powerful, life-altering promises in Scripture. Far more than merely another psychology "self-help" guide, Running Scared serves as a biblical road map to a life of serenity and security.

Your Sacred Yes Book Excerpt:

Are you worn out from life's ought-to's and should-do's? It's so easy to give away our time to things un-appointed by God. We commit to something because it's a good cause or there's a great need. Or maybe because no one else will help out. The result? The days blur together and we find ourselves overworked and underjoyed, desperate for a faith awakening. In this practical and liberating book, Susie shares biblical ways to: · Learn how--and when--to say no without guilt or shame · Find a pace and perspective that matches God's best for you · Discern man-made obligations from God-given invitations Will you say yes to the One who will rejuvenate your soul? Includes Reflection Questions for Personal or Group Use. A DVD Study Companion Is Also Available Separately. "If your days feel more life-draining than life-giving, let Susie Larson show you how to reclaim the joyful, fruitful life God wants for you."--Mark Batterson, bestselling author and lead pastor of National Community Church "Susie really opened my eyes to look for God's best when deciding where I spend my time. He doesn't give up on us because we made mistakes. He has a design and purpose to fulfill, and the enemy would love nothing more than to take us out with exhaustion and wasted time."--Caroline Barnett, co-pastor of The Dream Center and author of Willing to Walk on Water "Saying yes to God is the most important decision you can make, but it shouldn't stop there. After beginning a relationship with Christ, we must constantly say yes to His influence, wisdom, and power in our lives. Your Sacred Yes will empower and equip you to say yes to a life of freedom, fulfillment, and significance. Say yes!"--Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of LifeChurch.tv and author of From This Day Forward "Challenging us to carefully consider our sacred responsibilities, Susie Larson uses her trademark transparent stories to compel us to rest more and to make the difficult decisions that will prioritize our relationship with God. If you find yourself in the rat race of life, Your Sacred Yes will give you the courage to slow down and say yes to the right things."--Pastor Nate and Jodi Ruch, Emmanuel Christian Center "This is such a timely book for all of us. I am grateful that Susie said yes to writing these sacred truths. This book will strengthen and empower all of us to follow the voice of God with more boldness and clarity."--Brady Boyd, pastor of New Life Church and author of Addicted to Busy

Rusty Dearest Book Excerpt:

This is a story of my father who went to war as a soldier. Years after he passed away of cancer, our mother passed on to join him. We found among countless family mementos, most of them worthless a nondescript cardboard box filled with hundreds of letters he had written to her from the battlefields of France and Germany. His letters were very clear that in his time of need, a trial of terror fueled by Nazi bombs, she had been his salvation. She and their baby son gave him the reason he needed to stay alive. There in ink and sometimes pencil, he told her again and again of his dreams for the future while he lived each day in a world of foxholes and nerve shattering explosions, where each day death came to call. For him and every other soldier on either side, tomorrow was one day closer to the end, whatever that might be. In his letters he told her again and again she was the greatest love he could ever know. "Rusty Dearest" is their story.

Why did I do that? Behind every choice is a motivelike pleasure, comfort, or control. Motives can be hard to identify and even harder to change. In CCEFs Choices: Why Do I Do What I Do?, biblical counseling expert Edward T. Welch shows all who are perplexed by their own choices that Gods word alone can transform our motives and move us toward the lasting change we desire. Pointing us to the Bible for practical help, Welch suggests three manageable steps toward change. As we grow in our understanding of God, he explains, we will discover that we are already on the path to making new choices that honor God and bless others.

The Busy Christian s Guide to Busyness Book Excerpt:

Do you say 'yes' to requests when really you mean to say 'no'? Do you feel permanently trapped by your 24/7 lifestyle? While offering practical help to busy Christians, Tim Chester also opts for root-and-branch treatment: you need to deal radically with the things that are driving you. If you're busy because of the following; 'I need to prove myself'; 'Otherwise things get out of control'; 'I like the pressure/money'; think again! At the root of our 'slavery' are serious misunderstandings, often reinforced by our culture. If we want to be free, then we need to counteract them with God's word. It's important to manage our time, but it's more important to manage our hearts. God has promised his rest to all who are weary and burdened (Matthew 11:28). It's up to us to accept it.

To see our sins, wounds, idols, and failures apart from God's is simply too much. We will either minimize our condition, thus marginalizing our need of grace, or we will run away in hopeless despair to the arms of a lesser love or to the worship of lesser gods. But . . . God pursues us in our restlessness. receives us in our sinfulness. holds us in our brokenness, and frees us from our lovelessness. -- Scotty Smith excerpt from Objects of His Affection

Mirror Mirror Book Excerpt:

Our identity or self-image is a bit like looking in a mirror. We see our reflection and make judgments about ourselves. However, the 'mirror' we use tends to be the world around us: how do I compare with others and what do they think of me? But there is another mirror we can use - the mirror we should use. James 1:23 - 24 tells us that the Bible, God's word, is like a mirror. We look into it and see what we are really like. Here is a description, not from culture, but from God. The world tells us that we need a good self-image. The Bible says that we need a right self-image. With a pastor's heart, Graham Beynon, minister at Avenue Community Church in Leicester, helps us realign our thinking.
